Giulia Tagliabue receives the 2020 Rising Stars of Light Award
Giulia Tagliabue, head of the Laboratory of Nanoscience for Energy Technologies (LNET) just received the first prize of the 2020 Rising Stars of Light Awards.
Professor Tagliabue joined the School of Engineering as tenure track assistant professor in 2019 and is head of the Laboratory of Nanoscience for Energy Technologies (LNET), which aims to provide a better understanding of how light interacts with materials on a nanometric scale.
Rising Stars of Light, initiated by Light: Science & Applications, is a worldwide campaign for the most shining young scientists in optics-related topics . The Committee selected 10 final candidates from MIT, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, EPFL, National University of Singapore, NIST, Fudan University, University of Colorado, Boulder, and Vanderbilt University. After two sessions of talks and presentations, the Committee members selected EPFL’s Giulia Tagliabue as the first prize winner.
Professor Tagliabue’s first prize confirms the strength of EPFL in photonics at the world stage.
